Those with 40 MBPS speed, make sure they gave you a DOCSIS 3 modem. DOCSIS 2 supports only 38 MBPS which is why you maybe hitting that limit.

I got 100 MBPS in Pune today. The SpeedTest ended before I could hit 100 but I went up to 80 which is good enough.

I live in Nerul, Navi Mumbai. I took this plan 2 months back. I am consistently getting 90 - 93 mbps download and upload on speedtest. I am able to stream 4K on my samsung tv without any problems. 4k youtube vids also no problem. Streaming content has been a wonderful experience. But when i download something from a website, i get only 10 - 15 mbps as download speed. Torrents sometimes reach 30 mbps. Is anyone facing similar problems ?

THe problem is with MB and Mb.
MB = MegaByte, Mb = Megabit.
In speedtest.net, speed are in megabits per second, where 1byte = 8bits.
So your speed is 100 megabits per second. But browser and torrents show speeds in megaBYTES per second, so it is 1/8 of actualy value.

If you get 93mbps speed test, you should get 11.625 MBPS in chrome / torrents, so 30 in torrents is DAMN good. but just to confirm post a screenshot of a popular torrent. Also in speedtest.net, go to settings, and change megabits to megabytes and then do a speedtest. please post your results here!

Hi poiasd,

I totally understand the difference between Mbps and MBps. Let me rephrase my question.
I get around 93 mbps/11.625 MBps in speedtest.net, but i only get around 30 mbps/3.75 MBps while downloading torrents. Why such a big difference between speedtest.net and actual downloading and if anyone else on this plan is facing similar problems.

I automatically like you because not only do you know the difference, you were smart enough to use a linux iso for the torrent...

I guess, one possibility MIGHT be that the torrents don't have enough seeds, or there are too many people downloading at once. For speeds upto 10mbps you don't really notice anything, but at 100mbps others are probably unable to upload that fast, so you feel lag. Or maybe You Broadband is doing some shit on their end, can't say.

Try a popular (Y*FY) torrent with lots of seeds and check speed.

In torrent downloading it was around 38.4 mbps/4.8MBps.

Are the SpeedTests you are doing done with a direct connection while the downloads are via WiFi?
WiFi will never give 100 MBPS WAN to LAN speed unless you are running a very high powered router.

More info here: DD-WRT Forum :: View topic - 100 MBPS internet plan but E1200 gives 10-20 MBPS.

My computer connection to my router is only via wifi. I do all my tests and downloads via Wifi.

I have a MacBook Air as my primary computer. I have an Airport Extreme (Tower Model with AC wifi) as my router. I connect to my router via WiFi (5Ghz Band), so there is no question of any bottlenecks.

Anyways my download speeds keep fluctuating. Sometimes it is 15 mbps/ 1.87 MBps or sometimes it goes as high as 65 mbps/ 8.5 MBps. But my speedtest results are always the same at around 93 mbps / 11.6 MBps.

I just wanted to know why the difference between speedtest and actual downloads.

speedtest results are bound to change from one server to another. are you picking a server hosted by your own isp? :D
plus... isps have been known to provide better connectivity with speedtest servers because it is such a simple scam to get away with.

I never select any server, but it keeps juggling between MTNL, Reliance Jio and their own server.
I feel your are right regarding ISP's better connectivity with speedtest servers, this way they can easily market higher speeds.
